I actually like both. Except for the front grill shape, I think Lexus design is pretty sweet. Plus the fact that it still has the v8 makes it more appealing though not enough to pick it over the M4.

the short front overhang looks really good on lexus. i think interior and exterior are much more aesthetic than M4.

M4 is too long to be a coupe. it reminds me of solara in terms of length. lexus looks sportier because it has shorter wheelbase ...at least judging by pics.

I understand how the fairly radical styling (especially front bumper cover/air intake area) is polarizing. I do have to give them credit for taking a daring and revolutionary sort of approach. One of the biggest questions I have it weight. I couldn't find a shred of anything on that or on the base RC 350 weight either. If the car is rated precisely on power and assuming the new M4 has about 455 hp (30 hp underrated) this car could weight as much as 3720 (full fluids, with driver) and still enjoy the same power to weight ratio as the M4. I suspect the car won't weigh that much and thus is likely to have a better power to weight ratio. This leads me to believe the car may best the M4 in a straight but still get bested on a track. It is definitely something for me personally to keep an eye on for potential future ownership.

The grill on the Lexus is too small. It should fill out more of the front of the car....

Seriously, the Lexus' grill is so big it looks like you could pull the engine from the car without opening the hood!

We are in big trouble and im not standing behind any of the new BMW's with blind loyalty and that KILLS me because I want to. It used to be like that and no matter what I will always buy/drive a BMW but damn, between 2000 and 2010 I would be proud of every BMW on the road no matter what small flaws it had. BRING BANGLE BACK FFS!

The M4 is a MUCH MUCH Better looking car inside and out. The only good thing about the Lexus is that its NA but i only say that as im an NA guy. Would still take the Turbo M3 over it in a heartbeat.

Wow that Lexus would be money if not for that beak. That is a deal breaker right there. But the numbers look good. ///M better deliver on every aspect to beat all the higher power competition!

The rear 3 quarter angle on the RCF looks really aggressive, the M4 looks almost mundane next to it. But there are so many design elements and sharp edges that the design just becomes contrived. Wish it took more subtlety from the LF-A because this car has the proportions to be very handsome.

What a mess the Lexus is, phew!
Really distracted just looking at it, the front looks like a bluewhale opening it's mouth.
The BMW is the classy, sporty yet subtile choiche. With a no nonsense look, clean lines, pute business, and refined choice!
The Lexus is for guys that like "techy" stuff, and plastic performance, like ricers and in general have poor taste.
It's hideous and very cheesy!
Looks like they wanted to much for this car, and put to much mess on and in it!

Cons:
- The side profile is a mess.
- Too many competing lines throughout the exterior design of the car.
- Automatic transmission.
- Interior is a bit of a mess.

Pros:
++ High-output NA V8 engine
+ LFA-inspired cluster

Lexus look like EVO X + BRZ + FRS + Accord = No originality !!
BMW has more personality with exception of the instrument cluster.....
